Plan carefully to live together as an unmarried couple

There are several things that couples who are living together can do if they want to protect their financial future. Making sure that your finances are protected can help you to feel more secure in the relationship since you know that if something happens, you are covered.

Same-sex couples have rights and responsibilities in family law

Same-sex partners face unique trials as they walk through life. Everything under the family law umbrella can seem much more complicated when the couple is a same-sex couple. This doesn't mean that same-sex couples deserve any less protection or should have fewer rights than their opposite-sex counterparts. We know that same-sex couples want to enjoy the full protections and rights they have under the law. We can help you to learn about these points and determine how to handle your current family law needs.

Fighting to help same-sex couples with family law issues

We recently discussed some of the unique challenges that same-sex couples face. When the challenges that you face are of the legal variety, such as child custody, property division or adoption, we are here to help you learn about the options that you have to handle the situation.

Domestic partnerships have responsibilities and benefits

Even though same-sex marriage has become legal nationwide, some people might still opt to use a domestic partnership as the legal basis for their cohabitation agreement.

Nontraditional families need legal protections

Nontraditional families deserve to have the same protections and benefits as traditional families. There are some instances in which the composition of the family makes getting legal protections a bit more complicated than what would occur in a traditional family.

Same-sex couples face many of the same issues as heterosexuals

Same-sex couples sometimes have to deal with social stigmas associated with their relationship status. Even though some people claim that same-sex marriages and relationships are somehow inferior to opposite-sex ones, that isn't anywhere close to the truth. Learning some facts about same-sex marriages and relationships might help to dispel some of the stigmas.

Should you have a prenup?

The U.S. Supreme Court decision last year was a huge one in the history of the country. Many same-sex couples immediately got married or started making plans to wed. However, now that it's been a year since the decision was handed down, some possible unseen consequences are coming to light. One of those is that many same-sex couples would benefit greatly by having a prenup in place before the wedding.
